Since 2015, the FAANG consortium is working to discover basic functional knowledge of genome function to decipher the genotype-to-phenotype (G2P) link in farmed animals. Our community is working to
- standardize core assays and experimental protocols,
- coordinate and facilitate data sharing through its Data Portal, and
- establish suitable infrastructures for data analysis.
We have described a set of research priorities for the next decade of FAANG research (FAANG to Fork strategy) to link G2P in diverse populations of animals and apply innovative new technologies to model G2P at the cell, tissue and whole animal scale.
